Minutes:

RESOLVED that the application be determined as follows :-

 

(a)       Item 1 : Shipdham : Land adjacent 58 Parklands Avenue : Proposed erection of single dwelling with integrated cart lodge for A C Williamson & Son : Reference : 3PL/2010/1358F

 

The application sought full planning permission for the erection of a two storey detached dwelling with a car port, office and store.  The proposal also included a new gravelled access off Parkland Avenue.  The site was situated within the Settlement Boundary.

 

Anglian Water had responded since the report was published and had raised no objection subject to condition.

 

Four representations had been received from local residents with regard to drainage and sewerage capability, the development being out of character and the need to retain the footway.

 

Environmental Health had advised that problems during the period 2001-2004 were, as far as they were aware, as a result of a problem with Anglian Water and a sewer run, which had now been addressed, and for the last six years Environmental Health had received no complaints.

 

The Ward Representative stated the building was too large, it was cramped, the site had poor drainage history and the building would exacerbate the existing poor drainage situation.

 

Anglian Water had considered there was capacity for foul water, but required a condition for surface water and to demonstrate against 100 years flooding.  Run-off from the site was expected to be no greater than it currently was.

 

It was considered that the gravel driveway could lead to noise and disturbance, so an alternative porous surface might need to be considered.

 

Mr Turner, Objector, who lived at No. 52 Parklands had strong objections as the area lied directly across the Anglian Water sewerage network.  Anglian Water had repeatedly been called out to unblock the system.  Sewerage built up in gardens and on the foot path, raw sewerage had been seen in a local stream and on land within the last few years.

 

Mr Pick, Objector, who resided at No. 49 Parklands, stated that the main and land pipeline discharged surface water into the local water course and would add a serious public health risk.  His garden and the foot path had had human effluent on them.

 

Mr Hewett, Ward Representative, requested a site visit as he believed the plan did not fit as the scales were wrong for a 3 bedroom house.  He considered that drawings were misleading in terms of content.  Whilst Anglian Water had stated there had been no complaints, Mr Picks had a list which detailed 40 occasions since 2002, 21 of which had been over the last 5 years, where Anglian Water had been called out.

 

A Member of the Committee asked for the application to be deferred to allow a site visit to be undertaken and for the site to be measured along with the size of the house.

 

Deferred, on the grounds that further information was required in respect of :-

 

            1)         site measurements

2)         the house footprint to be pegged out

3)  ...  view the full minutes text for item 85.
